the museum of taipei university of education presents ‘L’OUVRE 9’, a celebratory exhibition of the institution’s eclectic graphic collection. noiz architects, whom originally designed the museum’s interior and a series of exhibitions since their opening in 2012, was also responsible for ‘L’OUVRE 9’. the event was completed in partnership with curator fabrice douar, with additional design and art direction by lucie lom

the unique collection includes works by prominent artists such as enki bilal, hirohiko araki, and many more. three galleries (1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors) are allocated for the show, with the ground floor dedicated exclusively to the art of local taiwanese cartoonists.

in response to the youthful atmosphere of the selected pieces, noiz created a dynamic background defined by a ‘leporello’ or continuous ribbon-like strip that weaves throughout the entire space. at certain points, the white band transforms into displays, which are made of folded aluminum plate that was pre-bent and assembled on-site.

huge screen prints on mesh fabric hung from the ceiling and walls set the tone as viewers progress through the sequence of loosely divided exhibition rooms. the floating images — portrayals of the louvre — simultaneously blend and contrast with the show, as well as merge with the surrounding taipei scenery. ‘L’OUVRE 9: open the louvre’s 9th art comic collection’ is slated to travel from taipei to tokyo later this year, followed by other asian cities
